Shattered Water Made A Misty Din

When I saw a detail shot of this print on Modcloth, I knew the "When Doves Fly" dress had to be mine. It is like some sort of compulsion to automatically desire patterns with birds. Luckily, I was one of the fortunate few to snag it, as the dress is now sold out. It is a perfect summer dress; the print keeps the basic shape from being boring. You can request to be notified on re-stock of the dress since they are bringing it back. I have placed myself on the restock list for a certain horse print dress...
I felt the dress paired with my new flats would be a cool Pop Art-ish outfit and would inflect some much needed color into my daily routine. These flats have quickly become the most comfortable shoes in my humble collection; which makes me question my sanity in wearing heels so much lately. I might just have been converted back into a regular flats wearer. They are better "adventure" shoes than heeled clogs for a windy day down by Puget Sound where the waves were tumultuous and the shore was littered with the bodies of tiny jellyfish...

the little birdies on that adorable dress of yours told me just how darn darling you look in it and how much i wish i had one all my very own (wishlist, here i come!)

Ali said...

I like how the orange on the shoes contrasts with the blue in the dress.. such a pretty print.

Eunice said...

bird prints are the best :) love the blue next to the water :)

Isabel said...

The dress is just so precious! I love it.

DearBeatrice said...

the print on your dress is so cute!

Hannah said...

the horse print one would be so perfect! very miu miu i love it.

bestie said...

Haha. I still recall a time when you wore flats in your daily outfit posts to wardrobe_remix Rebecca, and I have noticed a shift to heels as of late. But no worries, you look good in both, and I think no matter how much you wear those fierce shoes you will always still go back to the comfort and charm of flats (as I do!).

PS: That is indeed a lovely dress.(:

Annabel said...

Really inspiring to see how you combine your items and style them with nail polish and other accessories.. Love all your looks!

Nadine said...

I adore your dress and the shoes.

theowlsarenotwhattheyseem said...

i love bird prints too, so i am putting myself on the list for this dress when it re-stocks! the dress is gorgeous on you. i like how your outfit coordinates with YOU- the little bit of color on the shoes matches your hair, and your lipstick coordinates with the hints of red in the dress. ~joelle

Dominika said...

so beautiful!
i love the print on your dress! ^^

hello birdy said...

Gah! I was almost to scared to scroll down to the picks **LOVE** I simply cannot describe how besotted I am with all things birdy....and horse related! I think it'll come to light more once I set up my screenprinting business....and get the tattoos I have planned! Moneymoneymoney...

such a different/cute print!

Dotti said...

Oooooooh, the dress is absolutely darling. I will have to think about that re-listing list.

Lexie said...

YES! use your modcloth influence and get that dress re-stocked, pronto! you look so pretty!

nicola said...

Cute dress and overall outfit. The scenery is nice but would be even better if the horizons were straight.

Wanderlusting said...

SO FRESH! And so clean, clean lol

Loving that second picture of you, so happy and free (I personally love Orange and Blue together, even though the peeps on Project Runway mocked it the other day, pshaw)

Lusty :)

Julia said...

I love your seaside pictures. What a darling dress!

xx

fashionforwriters said...

I love that your dress is named after a Prince song! I just spent (wasted?) many hours watching Prince songs and thinking how amazing he looks in every single one of them. And yay for wearing flats! Yours are so darling you should wear them all the time.

@nicola, aw, that's my creative expression! ;) I actually can straighten horizons...I guess I just like 'em crooked.

Lindsay Jean said...

none of the buyers even got that horse printed dress ~sigh~ hehe, we were sad sad sad.

Polina said...

love this dress!!

Mel said...

That dress is absolutely lovely! I adore the doves and the color of the dress! It looks so amazing on you, I might have to check it out!

Sarah K. said...

this outfit is pretty darn perfect. I love your scarf, especially. and you always look so graceful in your pictures...

Sara Lynn said...

great outfit! I really think anything blue you wear really fits you well, goes great with your red hair.

libys11 said...

are you nails matte in this one??
do you know where i can get matte ones in different colors??

Mousevox Vintage said...

This dress is too cute! And the little pops of red on your flats just make this even better. xo.

Draft of Vintage said...

How sweet is that print! Great "pop" effect with the shoes... and what a beautiful landscape...

Dhu said...

Ohh, what a wonderful dress! I love the little doves and the hearts. That scarf is also pretty wonderful.

Diane said...

this dress is so pretty! such a great print!

I have a compulsion to buy things with twig/tree patterns on them, or are made of reclaimed wood.

Wood iPod/iPhone dock/alarm clock. Wood Radio. Wood stool made out of solid log...

It's just certain things that draw us. Birds are a symbol of your character, your moral compass and moral purity (for which I admire you), and your innocence, that you can find charm and lovely elements in simple and beautiful places/things that brings you untainted, unfettered joy. Most of us are so complicated we can't embrace those things.

Or maybe you just like cute birds. :)

very exciting items (dress and flats).

I also love the bun! I either need to cut bangs again or wait until the grow out from my old bangs gets longer to make this work.

alamocitystyle said...

that dress is to die for, as well as your flats!

jess said...

The print is just adorable.

Winnie said...

Oh the print is so lovely. Are you wearing lipstick? If so, the colour goes amazingly well with the orange on your shoes. Perfect co-ordination I would say!

Leproust Vintage said...

The doves on your dress, paired with the orange details on your shoes are simply adorable!!

Such an adorable dress, I wanted it as soon as I saw it on modcloth but when I went back to look again they were sold out in my size. Guess i`ll have to wait till they restock it.

The first picture <3

Caddy said...

That dress reminds me of the prints Miu Miu released recently

Trishna said...

I simply love the first and the eighth photo or the 7th, depending on if you count the little animated photo thingy or not. The beautiful surroundings with you in it in your whimsical outfits is just other worldly. I often do not know what to say...but just stare at them.
